A Collaborative Technology of Intelligent Mobile Robots for Reliable Emergency Alert Broadcast

Sekchin Chang and Yong-Tae Lee

C.A E-mail:


The CBS and the AEAS functionalities are defined in cellular systems and T-DMB systems, respectively. In the case that communication facilities are disabled in indoor environments, it is impossible for the residents to receive the emergency messages. In this paper, a novel collaborative technology of intelligent mobile robots is proposed, which relies on cooperative communications among the intelligent mobile robots. In order to improve the performance, the intelligent mobile robots exploit their location information. Simulation results confirm that the proposed method is very suitable for reliable emergency alert broadcast.
